Mobile Application Developer

Application Developer

The position

We are looking to hire a mobile application developer to broaden our services and lead expansion into native mobile application development. We are looking for an engineer that has experience developing and deploying native mobile applications on a team at scale. Technical acumen and ability to mentor others are equally crucial to succeed in this role. You will work with a team primarily located in Durham, NC, though we have a number of team members and supporting contractors that work remotely. We are looking to fill the role in Durham, NC but will consider the right remote candidate. Your expertise in how to architect, and plan mobile applications will be relied on heavily to shape how we offer these services.

Working at Savas Labs

At Savas Labs, we prioritize a few things. We like people who are enjoyable to work with. We learn from and teach one another, and often the result is others learn as well either via blog posts, conference presentations, or social media. We dedicate time each week for self-improvement, socializing, and collaboration. We encourage a flexible work schedule so long as we uphold our commitments to one another and our clients. We value openness and encourage our team members to push and recognize the boundaries of their expertise in a given area. We are honest, yet respectful; this is not a cut-throat environment, but rather a supportive one. We take a lot of pride in the quality of our work. We value a work/life balance that keeps us productive and happy. We like to have fun and we take our values seriously. We greatly embrace diversity, value hard work, and use emoji fairly often :+1:.
